I’m excited to be joining the Oiselle Volee running team!
I have been a fan of Oiselle’s running clothes for quite some time and for the last three marathons I’ve run, I have sported the Long Flyte Short and a Oiselle hat. Oiselle’s clothes is the reason I became interested in the company but not the reason I decided to join the team. As I learned more about the company’s founding, Kara Goucher’s partnership with Oiselle, and their support of women in running, I knew I wanted to join the Volee team one day.
This timing could not be better actually. Certainly not because I am 7 months pregnant and my days of running consistently may be limited for the next couple of months, but because after over 4 years of being dedicated to distance running, I know it’s my passion. Also, with the upcoming arrival of our baby girl, I would love to share my love of running with her. I wanted to join a running community that is dedicated to supporting women and Oiselle could not be a better choice.
Since posting on social media that I am excited to be a part of the team, I have been welcomed by so many members of the team virtually. I am looking forward to joining such a supportive, passionate, and strong community of women.
Many who know my running story know that I started “for real” distance running when my grandmother passed away due to Alzheimer’s and I have been fortunate to be a part of the Athletes to End Alzheimer’s NYC Marathon teams for the last 4 years. Being a part of Oiselle Volee does not mean I will not support Athletes to End Alzheimer’s or join their team again, joining the Volee team is just another community that I am excited to be a part of.
